The International Baccalaureate (IB) Programme is a challenging academic liberal arts curriculum. It focuses on the learning process with the goal of helping students grow as learners, analyze information, and reach considered conclusions about society and the world in which we live. The IB diploma is an academic passport, recognized around the world as a symbol of intellectual promise and achievement.
